CBS announced earlier this week that the big Big Brother 17 twist involves the introduction of new twists every week. Weekly, a special guest enters the Big Brother 2015 house to reveal the big twist of the week. Due to the new weekly twists, CBS dubbed Big Brother 2015 the “takeover” season.
On launch night, two guests enter the Big Brother house to unveil the twist of the season, and the first two big twists. Big Brother 16 winner Derrick Levasseur hinted (via Twitter) that he could become one of the special guests of Big Brother 17. We may not know when to expect Derrick but we know to expect him at some point in the game.
CBS’s official press release states:
BIG BROTHER announces this summer’s exciting new twist, “BB Takeover,” featuring weekly surprise guests who will unleash new twists into the game each and every week. The season’s special two-night premiere airs Wednesday, June 24 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and Thursday, June 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. In addition, Houseguests this season will live in a modern steel beach house that features a towering Sky Bridge.
We can safely bet on Big Brother alumni being the main special guests to enter the house during various takeover weeks. We also expect to see CBS stars. Like previous Big Brother seasons, we can expect some CBS cross-promotional efforts with stars of their fall and summer shows.
Likely, CBS plans to combine new twists and some of Big Brother‘s greatest hits twists (e.g. twins, exes, pairs, enemies, golden power of vetos, Pandora’s Box, and bringing back ghosts of Big Brother‘s pasts to stay throughout the season).
The addition of so many Big Brother twists can only mean that this season will not be boring. We already expected a rather exciting season with such a knowledgeable, cutthroat, and dedicated Big Brother 17 cast. This new detail ramps up our excitement for Big Brother 2015.
